Compact & robust solution for laser beam steering
At CarboSpaceTech, we developed a Rotating Wedge for applications that require laser beams to be aimed at distant targets. This compact, robust and economical device for beam steering was designed for Hensoldt for use in semiconductor industry.
The CST Rotating Wedge is based on a Risley prism. The beam deflection is only dependent of the rotation of prisms around the optical axes which is measured directly and highly precise. The system is therefore resistant towards positioning in the beam path as well as environmental conditions such as temperature or vibration.
